Sign of the Times - Teenagers Murdered Rare in Bulgaria

It was such a shock when two teenagers were recently murdered in Sofia - This was bi big news here. Unlike the UK where this happens often the community it is a very rare in Bulgaria. I am afraid may have to get used to this as the influence of teenage violence from America and Western Europe take hold.

Hundreds Rally in Sofia in Remembrance of Double Murder Victims

Bulgaria: Hundreds Rally in Sofia in Remembrance of Double Murder Victims

Several hundred took part in a rally Wednesday to remember the two young Bulgarians who were killed before the Solo Club in downtown Sofia on April 18.

The rally started at the Slavia Stadium where the young hockey player Vazharov used to play, and reached the site of the double murder in front of the Solo Club.

Earlier Wednesday night the Sofia City Court ruled to keep behind bars the suspected murderer, the 22-year-old Iliyan Todorov, as the investigation of the case is still under way.

The 21-year-old Vasil Alexandrov, and 24-year-old Kiril Vazharov were killed in a fight between two allegedly drunk groups of young people in front of "Solo" club in downtown Sofia around 4 a.m. Saturday, police officials reported.

Both men were stabbed in the back while trying to get away from the fight. Vazharov was a goal keeper for Bulgaria's national ice hockey team.
